In a Git code repository I want to list all commits that contain a certain word. I tried this
git log -p | grep --context=4 "word"
but it does not necessarily give me back the filename (unless it's less that 5
lines away from the word I searched for. I also tried
git grep "word"
but it gives me only present files and not the history.
How do I search the entire history so I can follow changes on a particular word? I mean to search my codebase for occurrences of word to track down changes (search in files history).
